    The wife likes the Cragar s/s wheels, the other Nova is for me and I just want something that looks good and from that era. I have the OLD PRO kit but will be buying another 1 or 2, possibly AMT or REVELL. This will depend on what kit the hoods will fit.

    Hoods and misc parts needed
    Hi all,
    While I sit here and wait for this stupid storm to hit us in CT. I am looking for a couple of hoods bot for early 70's Novas, an L88 style and a low cowl style. I am also looking for slapper style traction bars and some decent looking 70's style mags.
    My wife always wanted an old school Nova, jacked up with side pipes.

    thanks for any help

    I thought maybe Modelhaus made some, I'll have to wait til they are back from vacation to check their website.
    Thanks guys

    I found some listed on the Star models site made by Hendrix resin.

    Sent an e-mail to Steve Kohler to inquire about them

    Thanks to all for your help

    Hey porky
    As soon as i get the $$ I'll be ordering the hood and sleeper top.

    Any ideas where I can get the drive axles?

    This kit will sit for a bit since I've been out of it for a while. I want to brush up on my basic skills on some smaller easier models first.

    Those might work, will have to see the o.d. of them tho. Don't want them to be too tall

    Military style tires
    Ok
    I found my Hogan's Heroes jeep.
    Does anyone make the correct military lug pattern tires for this?
    The tires it comes with are ok for a civilian version, but I'd much prefer to build it as a military version, preferably with USN SeaBee markings.

    Thanks

    I have the hogans Heroes jeep
    Also the old Gangbusters series kits had Thompson submachine guns and a carbine.

    I'll need to find a source for more of the personal gear, ie: uniforms, canteens and such.
